Instagram limits and restrictions in 2017
For accounts that exist on Instagram for less than 6 months, the limits are lower, so do not subscribe on everything immediately after registration. Otherwise, the probability of blocking increases. Also for the first month the interval between your actions must be 36-48 seconds.
The social network summarizes all actions. For example, if you have subscribed to 60 accounts per hour, then it will be possible to unsubscribe in the next hour. In addition, the daily limit can not be used immediately. First of all, you need to consider the limitations that are specified per hour.
30 per hour
Interval 36-48 seconds
Interval 350-400 seconds
5 in each comment
Interval 350-450 seconds
60 per hour
Interval 28-38 seconds
Interval 28-36 seconds
Reasons for "ban" in Instagram
For non-compliance with the following rules, your account may be blocked:
- excess of limits;
- signing in from different devices;
- spam, identical comments under the posts;
- using materials prohibited by law;
- infringement of copyrights;
- using third-party services to get bots as subscribers or create other accounts;
- publications containing threats, discrimination, pornography, etc.
If your account is temporarily blocked, you need to wait some time (from several hours to several weeks). After three such temporary "bans", your account can be permanently blocked. Therefore, be sure to consider all the recommendations the social network informes you, especially if you are an active user.
